Iowa Awards Dakota Access Pipeline Permit

The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) determined today that Dakota Access has complied with the requirements set forth in its decision last month, and has voted to award the permit to construct the Dakota Access Pipeline.

After months of review, thousands of pages of testimony, and with the support of the members of the state’s labor groups, agriculture community, and business owners, the Dakota Access Pipeline can proceed in the state of Iowa. Thanks to the IUB’s decision thousands of Iowa’s workers will soon be put to work on the multi-billion dollar project, and the state can expect to see revenue being generated for necessary public investments.

We commend the Iowa Utilities Board for their work and look forward to seeing construction get underway soon.
